or battle till the bloody end here? >> what seems to be happening for president obama is that he has a firewall in the midwest or at least his campaign hopes that. actually, the election results come on tuesday might very well hinge on whether that firewall truly exists or not. according to our polls that you just showed in iowa, president obama has a lead. in wisconsin, it's a smaller lead. some other public polls suggest that as well. however, the romney campaign has made it adamantly clear that according to their polls in iowa, the race is dead even. so it really kind of matters where you actually see the race right now. but it's largely going to come down, as chuck pointed out, to the midwest and that's why you'll see president obama campaigning in ohio, wisconsin, iowa a lot these last five days. >> amy, let me bring you in. i know to mark's point, i believe it was one of the romney advisers or a supporter who said i think the word was "crap" when it comes to polls, at least the ones they didn't like to see. nevertheless, you can disagree with the percentage point here or there,
this corruption, how this happened over the last 20 years and particularly how it's culminated in the obama administration. every administration runs to be the most transparent administration. >> sean: they are full of it? >> clinton and bush and obama, each time they run because the american people want transparency and open and a government that is not in their lives eesmt one gets more power to themselves. that is why using the judicial watch david versus goliath, a small organization that is as tough as nails, confronting administration and taking the best of young talent. the town halls and breitbarts and mike flints and tell the whole story and end with the obama administration that concentrates what they have done. when you see it altogether you are shocked. >> we started with solyndra and fast and furious and benghazi scandal when you were doing the film. >> it's the same time of thing. >> the media can only cover so much about the scandals. this is the first time people will have an opportunity to see a sustained discussion of important issues. we cover a lot of it but now we know
the news of the day and taking your calls. pardon me. at 1-866-55-press. and president obama winning a decisive victory indeed on tuesday. re-elected for four more years but now a lot of republicans are saying he didn't get a mandate. what do you mean he didn't get a mandate? he won the electoral vote. he won the popular vote. he won! mitt romney lost! end of story! president obama does have a mandate to push his agenda. we'll tell you why and we'll tell you what it is but first here's the latest, today's current news update, standing by in los angeles, lisa ferguson. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. it's more than 24 hours now since the polls closed and we are still waiting on an official number from florida. it is obvious the state has not fixed its voting problems. as i'm sure you remember, it was florida 12 years ago causing the legal disaster between vice president al gore and president george bush. the difference this time, no one cares as much. president obama's victory was well secu

in washington. the early states that have been called are very much looking in barack obama's favor; pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, wisconsin. four states in the manufacturing belt of this country that the president desperately needed to hold to win re-election, it looks like he's going to hold all four of those states. mitt romney desperately wanted to put pennsylvania into play in the final weeks of this campaign, invested time, invested money, did not pick up the state. what's important is virginia, florida and ohio. mike, you've got some inside dope on virginia and florida in particular. >> yeah. just to set the stage for the drama of the next hour or so, the mitt romney math starts in florida, virginia, then moves on to ohio. from the war rooms of both campaigns, virginia is -- [inaudible] obama. now, the states are very close in the actual count, and we're trying to be clear here on our coverage about when a state is actually called and what the campaigns are doing, but we're also trying to pull back the curtain a little bit for you on what the campaigns are thinking. befo
're on the "countdown" to the election. we'll give you compelling reasons why you must give president obama another four years. we'll focus on three election topics incredibly important issues that some how failed to make headlines in this brutal campaign. first the war on drugs. ethan nadelman said although obama has been a disappointment in some ways romney would be a disaster in fighting the the war on drugs. then in the aftermath of super storm sandy, climate change. it still has not been a critical part of our political debate. we'll ask josh becker why president obama deserves an a-plus in the way he handled hurricane sandy. and then we weigh in on what to expect if governor romney goes to the white house. we'll bring a look at the tight race with fresh statistics from dave goldberg, and finally jesse jackson why obama's track record is enough to give him a second term. we'll begin with the war on drugs. ethan nadelman wants to legalize marijuana among others things. he has a clear message. take marijuana out of the courts. tax it like other drug and move on. ethan. great to have you on the show.
that this has been a plus for president obama. how big, we will see. if you are the incumbents and you're in a tough race, what do you want to do? you want to look presidential. that's a great advantage of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they a
obama is taking his fight over the fiscal cliff today heading to hatfield, pennsylvania. he is going to tour the rhodon group manufacturing facility. >> that's a place the white house says is one of the many businesses that depends upon middle class shoppers this holiday season. rhodon manufactures connect brand. that time group sells toys like angry birds building sets and tinker toys. at the end of the year, as i am sure you know by now the average middle class family is facing a 2,000 dollar tax hike. on monday of this week the white house released a report saying that could be americans spending $200,000,000,000 less in 2013. the president will continue to push his message but is it time to reach a deal over the fiscal cliff? but the g.o.p. is not so keen on a deal, at least the one the white house presented yesterday. the first offer from president obama and treasury secretary timothy geithner included a $1.6 trillion tax increase along with an extension of the payroll answer it cut and unemployment insurance and a request for $50,000,000,000 worth
. the final "wall street journal" poll of likely voters shows president obama leading mitt rom any by just one percentage point, 48% to 47% margin. polls in many battleground states remain too close to call. a running average of all national polls by real clear politics has the two men between 0.2% of each other. >>> at the same time, romney may not get to label china a currency manipulator if he becomes president because the power to do so doesn't lie with the commander in chief, but with the u.s. treasury secretary. analysts warn that provoking beijing could put bilateral trade at risk. joining us for more, chairman of the asian pacific council at the american chambers of down. steven, are you fearful if we had a president romney because of his threats against china? >> no, the rhetoric is more than it should be, but that's what we expect in the business community. we generally move forward in terms of our economic and trade relations with china be it a democratic administration or republican administration. the message we would give to a second obama term or a first romney term will be the

they were. >> well, i mean, in the end, obama won by a little more than the polls anticipated. more likely he produced an electorate. whoever won, we would wake up on election day and produce a little different electorate than anticipated. that is what happened. the electorate was more non- white than most polls anticipated. there was that. the debate had a huge impact. the first debate fundamentally changed the race and put romney back with and range. obama was able to stabilize at the end. but romney presented himself as an acceptable alternative. romney was able to walk over the threshold. in the end, he never addressed the demographic challenge. and the third debate he went back on some of the language. he talked about amnesty and deportation and basically ensured that number among hispanics. barack obama increased its share of votes among hispanics. that is a statement more about the republican party than the democratic party. >> that is not two waves. one was out of the democratic convention. that was a surge for the democrats. the second was a chance for the challenger to put himsel

that obama won because it gives to latinos and other minorities, that's insulting. latinas didn't vote for obama because obamacare. i think he is engaging obama in the same type of class warfare discussion that obama wants to have. i think we have to go back to the conservative populism of ronald reagan, which is to talk about the economy. but i would say something is. romney only emphasized -- very quickly. we cannot run only on an economic message. we have the full conservatives on social issues, on the national security, and on the economy. spent and aspirational. aspirational a mechanism where you are free to go as far as you want to go and to do what you want to do. and you are right about the hispanic community, especially they are very and trunk -- entrepreneurial. guess what. they start liking free government less. >> unfortunately, we're out of time to want to thank you all for coming today. please join me in thanking our panelists for this terrific presentation.
